8 ounces of popcorn, 2 ounces (or thereabouts) of coconut oil, Flavacol to taste (about 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon to start). MAKE SURE you put the Flavacol in when you put in the corn to pop, not after you pop it!
Warm up the kettle, turn on the motor, add oil, add corn and Flavacol when oil is melted. Popping ensues shortly thereafter.
I would strongly advise you beginning with the Mega Pop to start; I've used both - trying to save money. There is really not that much of a difference buying the ingredients separately. (I will add that I have a local Gold Medal store in my city, so all I have to do is drive by and pick up a case or two. I pay no shipping)
